But...but...but....nobody is talking about the $2 billion that his favorite daughter Ivanka and her Omen husband Jared have. Couldn't they easily lend/give some to Big Daddy?

Your last two pieces here remind me we all could benefit from emotional support from friends and acquaintances. These are painful and frightening times. From Navalny's murder to you addressing your grandfather's legacy and how you are impacted. I appreciate the detail and sharing that you inlcude in the harsh realities we are all facing and the ones you are facing. Bless be.

Expanding on what Mauimom posted: There was some conversation on MSNBC that Trump could be bailed out by some of his overseas friends, whether it is the Saudis or others. They could "gift" him with a lot of money simply because they want to curry favor with him, or they could buy some of his properties at ridiculously inflated prices, as they've done before. This worries me, even if for no other reason than Trump IS pretty creative in how he raises money and manipulates the system. And to the Saudis in particular, half a billion or so is chump change.

Thank you Mary! As Winston Churchill once said "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." My personal schadenfreude is bursting through every fiber of my being. I am especially grateful for your hard work and seeing your labors begin to blossom. May they continue to grow and bear fruit in November.

Greetings from Canada. As a person with disability (CP), I was appalled to see your uncle, who I call BROKEN 45, mock the movement of someone who presented with neurological disability. That abhorrent behaviour told me all I'd ever need to know about DON the CON. He really is an 'emotionally broken child' and has NO place in the WH ever again.

That he so blatantly abuses donors is a sad commentary on the lengths to which disturbed, frightened men will go to avoid accountability. BLUE will stop him and protect those who need uplifting. He's a danger across the globe.

Wake up, America. DO better! BE better. Your vote in November is for YOUR family and YOUR futures.

I applaud your efforts to educate and inform, Mary. Fight the good fight.

Best!

There are a few other important items in the mix: 1) the Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC), a so-called special-purpose acquisition company, said Thursday in a statement that the Securities and Exchange Commission had signed off on its proposed merger with Trump Media. This will potentially net Donald $4 billion. 2) Trump will appeal Engoron's ruling. Note: I don't know if Engoron's ruling has any effect on the Trump Media merger. I sure as he** hope so. Finally, Putin would give Trump the money he needs in a heartbeat ... Please remember there are ruthless dictators ruling today or still have a chance of regaining power despite they're disgusting criminal deeds: Vladimir Putin, Kim Jung-un, Netanyahu, Bolsonaro, Erdogan, Bashar al-Assad, Mohammed bin Salman - to name just a few. We'd like to think Donald is toast, but history of dictators shows there's the possibility he'll remain in politics for a long time (blech).

And with ALL OF THIS it's still bonkers and bizaaro that he's pretty much the presidential candidate for the republican party! HOOOWWWW??!! I mean I know how (cult) but HOOOWWW???!! This all reminds me of the "He's Alive" episode of The Twilight Zone. What a twisted and embarrassing time we're living in...and the entire world is watching.

Good luck #DonnyTheGrifter: The New York Court of Appeals, as of April 2023 -- all seven judges on the court were appointed by a Democratic governor.

We are so with you Mary.. stay well and be safe.

It is so good to see him becoming accountable, along with his children.

We are so distraught by the horrid end of Alexei Navalny, so this trial was an awesome reprieve

What you didn't mention, and perhaps could be #7 is that in order to appeal, as TFG has said he will do, he has to actually pay up, either with his own funds or with a secured bond -- and like with the banks, who in their right mind would ofter to secure a bond for this crook? He can't appeal until he pays up and the funds go into escrow. Taking great delight in imagining the amount of ketchup on the walls at his shitty Florida golf club! Keep up the good work, Mary -- we are with you every step of the way.

Fair warning, America: If Donnie The Rapist ends up being elected president, whoever bails him out will be the one calling the shots in his presidency. Vote for all Democrats on your ballot in every election starting with the next one. When we show up, Republicans lose—always.

Yes, this is good news, especially for you, Mary. But I agree, until his Jan 6 trial ends in conviction I'm still holding my breath.
